Student scholarships

Education department student scholarships

Scholarships are payments to help with the cost of your child’s education.
They’re generally offered based on:

  • financial need or difficulties
  • your child’s school results
  • school and community activities your child takes part in.
  • Most scholarships offered are for Victorian government school students. A small number are also open to non-government school students.


    VCE Summer School (VCESS) is a two-week tutoring program that takes place in January and aims to help VCE students from a range of backgrounds gain a head start on their final years of secondary education. The program has a particular focus on creating a healthy study-life balance, and providing tutoring on the widest range of subjects. In fact, we have tutors for each and every VCE subject you’re taking, no matter how small the subject may be.

    Big Camp Somers


    The aim of Big Camp is to challenge the perspectives that young people hold about themselves and others. Through introducing 100 young men and 100 young women aged 16.5 – 18 years to a broad range of peers, we help dismantle social barriers through an increased understanding and acceptance of diversity. Throughout the challenging week participants’ work together to compete as a team, push their boundaries and develop friendships. Leaving with a greater understanding of their own and others’ potential, participants gain new insights into how they can make a positive impact on their communities.
